assaulting three others near the Century City train station in Cape Town
between 2011 and 2015.
The NPA’s Eric
Ntabazalila said that It’s a very sad situation but they hope that the families
will find some closure after this sentencing.
He says It’s a
wound that will to be able to heal but as the NPA they did all they could to
ensure a long sentence.
Sedumedi’s family were visibly
distraught after he was sentenced by Western Cape Judge President John Hlope.

bodies of four women were found buried near the Century City Station.
